On 9/10/16, HOT 97 & New Yorkers laced up for a purpose at the inaugural New York Walk/Run for Education. More than 300 community supporters came together on Roosevelt Island for this celebration of education raising $100,000 for deserving students and UNCF’s member institutions. To cap off the event and drive awareness of the mission of increasing access to and successful achievement within the higher education system, the Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer proclaimed Sept. 10 “UNCF Appreciation Day.”
